What if you don't have enough time or space for a campfire but are drooling for smoky, gooey, sweet s’mores? Your grill can do the trick in no time. All you need is a flat fold-over grill basket, or even a slim kebob grill basket will work. A few minutes on the grill and you will have a big batch of s’mores to feed a crowd. The graham crackers get a little extra toasty as they are grilled along with the chocolate and marshmallows—something unique to this recipe. Even better, you can assemble the s'mores ahead of time and then grill them when ready to serve, for the ultimate prep-ahead dessert.



Special equipment:
a 12.5-by-8.5-inch flat fold-over grill basket or two 19.4-by-1.5-inch kabob baskets
  1. Prepare a grill for medium indirect heat. For gas grills (with 3 or more burners), turn all the burners to medium heat; after about 15 minutes, turn off one of the middle burners and turn the remaining burners down to medium-low (you want the temperature to be 350 degrees F). For charcoal grills, bank one chimney starter-full of lit and ash-over briquettes to one side of the grill. (Be sure to consult the grill manufacturer's guide for best results.)
  2. Open a 12.5-inch-by-8.5-inch flat fold-over grill basket (or two 19.4-by-1.5-inch kabob baskets) and place 8 of the graham cracker squares flat on the surface (dividing them between the kabob baskets if using). Top each graham cracker with 1 of the milk chocolate pieces. Place 2 marshmallow halves side by side on top of the chocolate with the cut-sides facing up (this will help the top graham cracker stay in place.) Place 1 of the remaining 8 graham cracker squares on top of each of the assembled stacks.
  3. Carefully close and clasp the grill basket(s) according to the manufacturer's directions, taking care not to crack any of the graham crackers. Place the grill basket onto the indirect section of the grill, cover the grill and cook until the chocolate just begins to melt and the graham crackers and marshmallows are beginning to toast, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip the grill basket(s) and continue to grill with the lid open until the other graham crackers just begin to toast and the marshmallows are melting and toasted, about 1 minute more.
  4. Unclasp the grill basket and transfer the s’mores to a serving platter.
